When it comes to anti-aging treatments, Botox is a popular option for rejuvenating the skin and minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The cosmetic injectable is versatile and widely-known for its ability to reduce the visible marks of aging on the face. At drs skincare in Hamilton ON, our team provides Botox injections to give natural looking results.
Botox is part of a class of injectables known as neuromodulators. It is derived from botulinum toxin type A and is FDA approved for minimizing lines and wrinkles on the face. Specifically, Botox injections can be used to address crow’s feet, forehead lines, and eyebrow furrows.
How it works:
- Prior to treatment, Dr. Shukla will examine the area to be treated to map out the injection sites.
- A tiny needle is used to deliver multiple units of Botox throughout the area.
- Once injected, Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract.
- This, in effect, relaxes the muscle to smooth out lines and wrinkles, leaving a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Typically, results are seen two weeks after treatment although some respond earlier. It’s important to note that Botox injections are temporary, typically lasting anywhere from three to six months. Patients can discuss follow-up treatments to keep the results long term. After several Botox treatments, the muscles will continue to shrink which lessens the severity of the lines and wrinkles that do reappear.
When it comes to Botox treatments, you want a team to deliver precise and accurate injections that give optimal and natural looking results. Many patients opt for Botox treatments along with dermal fillers for a full facial make-over.
